    Re: World Soccer XXVII: The REAL Football

    My take isn't as in depth. The same issues have plagued us for years now. Concede early, have to chase the game. And now i don't see the attacking talent to overcome it.

Sure, losing isn't so great, but Columbia is a top 3 team for a reason. I'd say in particular the defense is better. It was night and day compared to how we played vs Belgium. ( and I don't think Gonzales is all that good but that's just mho)
    Our defense played like crap last night. There were a ton of unforced giveaways and dumb mistakes, not to mention losing the man on the corner which led to the first goal and the handball leading to the second.

    After 1 game, Group A is

    COL 1-0-0 3 +2
    CRC 0-0-1 1 0
    PAR 0-0-1 1 0
    USA 0-1-0 0 -2

    Costa Rica did get a red card in the last couple minutes.

    Ideally Colombia wins out (as I think they should) and we still control our own destiny.

    Re: World Soccer XXVII: The REAL Football

    I think you have to remember that Altidore is hurt and the line up most likely would have been a lot different with him in it. Having said that, yes our formation could have been better. Though I didn't think we played all that badly overall, no one really played well either, except maybe Guzan.

    It's about to hit the fan in Glendale. Mexico was up a goal and a man until they had Guardado sent off and Uruguay scores on the free kick. Stuff has already been thrown. Dis gun be gud.

    Is it just my imagination or do concacaf/south american games turn into debacles more than any other region?

    No. Frankly it's a real problem.

    In terms of what happens on the field? Probably. But Europe seems to have a way bigger problem with politics encroaching onto the game. Ex: Serbia v Albania.

    Stuff was thrown by Mexican fans? I dunno, that sounds pretty far fetched.

    Re: World Soccer XXVII: The REAL Football

    The amount of diving was ridiculous. And the ref lost control about 2 minutes into the game. Did you notice how much heat the ref took from Uru players after the game.? I was trying to figure out what the goalie was so unhappy about.

    Panama scores pretty much immediately after they should have gone a man down.

    They're playing this game in the middle of the approach of a tropical storm. Crazy.

    I assume everyone saw how much Arsenal is offering Varny to leave LC?
    And seriously, can't we get the National Anthems right? I mean, is it really that hard?

    I can't wait to see Deadspin's article claiming that this is somehow MLS' fault.
